at McLean Packaging on Rapida 106
Eagle Systems, Inc., a US-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, confirms the completed installation of a new Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at US-based McLean Packaging Corporation in Moorestown (NJ). The Folding Carton Division in Moorestown is revered for their production of high-end cartonboard and plastic cartons and lids, tag and label applications, rigid and flexible windowing, specialty hot stamping and embossing, as well as silk screening. The Eagle Cold Foil System was installed in August and now operates in unison with the division’s new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106.
“We’ve been using the Eagle Cold-Foil system since March 2015, when we installed our first system on a Manroland 700 press,” notes McLean Pressroom Manager Rob Watts. “They’ve earned our trust by living up to every claim and promise. Their system simply does what President Mike King says it will, and then some. I have to admit, we didn’t even consider another Cold Foil option. Eagle has earned that much respect within McLean.
“With Rapida 106 production speeds up to 18,000 sheets per hour, we required an Eagle system that processes cold foil at corresponding speeds. With Eagle, every install is not only engineered for the press specs, but also the client’s specific requirements. It makes a major difference,” says Watts. “We’ve actually converted many of our clients from hot foil stamping to the many benefits of cold foiling and we attribute this to the brilliance and luster generated from Eagle’s systems. It’s definitely a win-win with for our customers and McLean. So much so that we’re now running cold foil every shift, three out of every five days.”
